Disability

Swimming Australia recognises the great potential for people with disability to participate in all aspects of the sport and we have been committed for many years to making inclusion simply part of what we do. Swimming Australia believes in taking a social approach to disability inclusion by putting the swimmer first, adapting to individual need and addressing both physical and attitudinal barriers to participation.

With the help of the State Swimming Associations and other partner organisations we deliver programs and resources to support and develop our Swim Clubs, coaches and officials to understand the needs of people with disability and how they can create a positive and welcoming environment.

Swimmers with disability have the same opportunities to swim as everyone! There are also programs and pathways that support swimmers to learn and improve.
